There aren't too many options for good hotels along I-5 in the San Joaquin Valley. This Quality Inn (formerly Holliday Inn Express) is good. We've stayed there many times through the years and the rooms are always very clean, quiet. The breakfast is also good. Be sure to check in first and get their "10% discount coupon" for the nearby...

My family stayed here for one night while visiting my mother in law who lives in Newman. There aren't very many options out here and it definitely feels like a stop over kind of town- but there is nothing wrong with that at all. The hotel is clean and the staff were all kind. The room was a very nice... More

it was advertised as having wifi but 3 all failed. We took one of our two computers to the lobby and but to no avail. Also the wall plug was faulty. The top socket didn't work so we had to move the couch to exchange the plugs for whichever lamp we wanted to use. BTW this has been encountered in... More

Holiday Inn Express is now a Quality Inn. The lobby is quite tacky and I really had reservations about checking but we were pleasantly surprised with the room. It was clean and quite large. We would return.

No longer a holiday inn express. Now a Quality Inn. The front desk person said they just changed 4 weeks ago. Also most of our GPS says the city of GUSTINE and not SANTA NELLA. Great place to stay between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the 5 freeway.

There's not much in Santa Nella but fast food, gas stations, and a few hotels/motels/. I was not expecting much but we were very pleased with the Quality Inn. The room was clean, modern, refrigerator/microwave/flat tv and free Wi-Fi. They also offer a free breakfast...eggs, bacon, SOS, fruit, cereal, make your own pancakes...it sure adds a lot of value to... More

While travelling from San Francisco to Los Anges, instead of paying Bay Area hotel prices we left at mid afternoon and check-in here. Santa Nella has a couple of options (nothing fancy) for dinner and some give you a 15% discount when flashing your hotel keys. And you are right on the I-5 freeway in the morning. The rooms are...

End of a long day starting in the UK, found the room large, well decorated with good furnishings, breakfast was OK. Only complaint was that the shower head was poor, and you had to dodge round to get wet. Would definitely stay again if passing by.

Over the last eight years my husband and I have stayed here about four times. The first two times were great, but the last time it looked old and tired. We thought we would try one more time. When I opened the room refrigerator to put some items in it I found old partially eaten food! So disgusting, and it... More

Santa Nella is a wide spot on Highway 5 where you gas up, grab a free cheese sample at Andersons Split Pea, and jump back on the highway; however, if you need a place to spend the night... stay here. You don't need to be a mental giant to figure out that all the other motels are practically sitting on... More
